CBR VET Summit

The first CBR VET Summit (the Summit) was held on Friday, 31 March 2017. The Summit provided an opportunity for the Minister for Higher Education, Training and Research, Meegan Fitzharris MLA, and Skills Canberra to listen to the views of some of the ACT vocational education and training (VET) sector’s key stakeholders about how VET is working in the ACT. The Summit included discussion on a range of topics relating to VET and provided an opportunity to hear from stakeholders including apprentices, trainees, vocational students and businesses.

Topics were tabled for each stakeholder group to discuss and their feedback will be used to inform ACT Government VET policy and promotional activities.
